At our men’s Bible study early yesterday morning, we discussed the Apostle Paul’s salvation experience – from what he was to what God did for him and ultimately through him.  What a stark difference between Saul the persecutor and Paul the preacher!  But as we learned, his salvation experience is no more miraculous, no more amazing, no more glorious than that of a small child reared in a Christian home coming to Christ.  You see, we are all in the same boat when it comes to being lost.  We’re all under the same condemnation, facing the same fearful destiny, and needing the same Savior.  This was reinforced this morning as I was reading Psalm 130.  In verse 3, the Scripture simply says, “If Thou, Lord, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?”  And the answer is just as simple: no one.  No matter our age, background, culture, people group, or religion, no one stands a chance as a sinner.  Bad news, indeed.  I’m so glad there’s a verse 4 that follows.  “But there is forgiveness…”  No matter what, no matter where, no matter who, there’s hope.  Where?  “With Thee.”  The gracious God of the Universe will grant forgiveness through His Son, Christ.  Why?  “That Thou mayest be feared.”  He forgives and saves to change us from self-serving sinners to Savior-serving saints.  So why not take a moment today and meditate on these verses and praise the Lord for His forgiveness?  Then, look for an opportunity to share the simple gospel message with someone you know.  There is forgiveness with God!
